Mayor’s Comments. Mayor Good once again commented that it has been remarkable watching the community come together in the clean up efforts after the storm. A pat on the back to all city employees and staff. It has been good to see neighbors helping neighbors and people from the country coming to town to help. There has been much progress being made by Legacy on a grocery store on main street.

 

Council Member’s Comments. There was discussion on a downtown building damaged by the storm and what the owners’ plans are moving forward. Administrator to send a letter to property owner. There was also discussion on the storm cleanup and burn pile. There has been an issue with too much garbage (tires, metal, cans) being put at the designated area for trees and limbs from the storm. The city will no longer be picking up limbs from the curbside. This ended on August 28th. Individuals and tree removal companies doing work within the city limits can take trees/limbs to the designated area. Place debris in front of the cones. City employees will control the pile. Trees have been marked that may qualify to be removed from the August 10th storm. However, this too has become a problem as individuals are marking trees as well. The City will only be removing trees in the right of way that meet the criteria to be removed. Council to look at and consider updating codes on trees within the city right of way.

 

Motion by Ohlson, second by Liston to adjourn at 8:00 p.m.

Ayes: All Present, Motion Carried.

Mayor’s Comments. Mayor Good thanked everyone for their help with clean up. OMU, fire, police and city employees have been working hard responding to calls and working to clear streets and restore power to the residents of Ogden. It is so awesome to see neighbors helping neighbors and working together for our small town. Mayor Good encouraged council and everyone to help when and where they can.

 

Mayor Good declared the City of Ogden a state of emergency authorized under Iowa State Statute and will execute the expenditure of emergency funds from all available sources, the invoking of mutual aid agreements and applying to the State of Iowa for assistance due to the severe thunderstorm that produced damaging straight line winds that occurred on Monday, August 10th, 2020 causing severe damage to public and private property, disruption of utility service and endangerments of health and safety of the citizens of Ogden within the disaster area. Any information will be collected and shared with the Iowa Department of Homeland Security and Emergency Management and shared with our local Boone County Emergency Management.

 

Council Member’s Comments. Brian Reimers asked about some areas that could possibly be available for trees. After much discussion the council felt Lincoln Prairie Park was the best place for now. Only brush and limbs from the recent storms can be dropped off at the park and city employees will be picking up from curbside. This is just a temporary location due to the recent storms. Margaret Liston updated council on the community garden. Karen Dannen is a master gardener and has been putting in hours working at the garden along with help from Rosie Wurpts. Margaret received a very nice message from an individual that is so thankful for the vegetables.  There has been some progress being made on the grocery store that is not yet available to be released to the public. There was some question regarding damage at a downtown business, owner is aware. Dave Ohlson asked about the veterans’ memorial fund and project that was started with Paul Hagen at the cemetery. Emily Clausen stated that it is still in the works and they are looking for individuals who would like to help with the project. Fence permit issues were discussed briefly.

 

Public Comment. Dave Huntley is the new American Legion post commander and they will be meeting and discussing the veterans memorial project.

 

Motion by Ohlson, second by Liston to adjourn at 7:50 p.m.

Ayes: All Present, Motion Carried.

 

 

Denny Good, Mayor

Attest: Melanie Olesen, City Clerk
